The Hodbarrow Lighthouse is a poignant landmark surrounded by a landscape that has seen former glory turn to financial collapse. Before the Hodbarrow mines closed in 1968 they were the most productive iron-ore mines in the world, employing 2,000 workers at their height. Most of the site is now an RSPB nature reserve. Great-crested grebe, tufted duck, ringed plover, oystercatcher and little tern can be seen here, amongst others.
